Here is a NEW release on our tiny label, it's been a while but we're back with a 48 minutes long improv by PHOBoS . PHOBoS is a master circuit bender, a hardcore DIY-er and a noisetoy maker. This recording was made mostly as a demo for the solenoid based mechanical toy piano PHOBoS built, but it also features a circuit bent MixMeDj and other DIY instruments. You can find more info about these at the moonbase
. (check PHOBoS' old webpage
for some really amazing circuit bent toys)
This is the description by PHOBoS as one can find at the electro-music.com forums: "I put the audio of the Solenoid Pianoid (picked up by a piezo) through some delays. Added some MixMeDj (bent toy) sounds through an Alesis Midiverb, and also hooked up one of my Drone boxes. This was all mixed in with a 20minute loop with some beats, synthpads and a couple of other sounds"
Overall dark a moody repetitive 48 minutes or so that brings one in a trance like state while rough mutilated drones are fading in and out ..

Well=balanced sounds and effects for this superb long form composition. Unique processed acoustic tones from the toy piano that glimmer in the foreground, while other diy sounds and rhythmic percussions nestle in and out in the background. Lots for the ears and mind to be pleased with here!
